If you think print is dead, think again. Libraries are flourishing nationwide, including in ski towns. And while alpine hamlets notoriously attract riffraff, they're also a magnet for creative types like writers, artists, and musicians, as well as deep-pocketed patrons of the arts. The results are some pretty badass libraries housed in everything from historic buildings to new, state-of-the-art structures. Mapped here are the best libraries the mountains have to offer. Besides books, you'll find classes, lectures, films, loads of kid's activities, even Pilates.
